A freak wave of summer tornadoes has struck northern and western Poland, killing at least one person and injuring another 10 people.

An area around Bory Tucholskie forest, a national park and popular tourist destination, was hit by a twister between 800 and 1000 metres wide.

More than 400 hectares of woodland were flattened in the area, authorities said, and more than 100 houses destroyed.

Power lines were downed and roads were closed as hundreds of firefighters worked to clear away fallen trees. Some trains had to make detours after debris fell onto tracks.

Firefighter Mieczyslaw Torlop told the TVN station that one man was killed in the village of Wycinki after being crushed by his house, which collapsed.
